Happy Gilmore picture

Plot hole: In the final tournament when Happy is stuck in the rough, he swings five times. Assuming he hit his drive into the rough and hit an AMAZING shot from the edge of the water into the hole, he still could do no better than a seven on the hole. Happy only lost one stroke on the hole. (01:16:50)

Beavis and Butthead Do America picture

Plot hole: When Butthead pushes Beavis out of Muddy's car, Beavis causes a huge car crash. Then, a few seconds later Butthead falls out and causes cars behind him to crash, but the crash that Beavis started made a barrier along the highway, so how could those cars get behind Butthead so fast? (00:51:50)

The Birdcage picture

Plot hole: There's no way for Albert to show up at the front door as Val's mother the night the Keeleys are there, as the only way out of his bedroom (which he is still in by the time the Keeleys show up) is through the door that leads into the living room where the Keeleys, Val and Armand are.

Striptease picture

Plot hole: When Erin goes to kidnap her daughter from Rita's caravan, she is hiding in a car wreck. Then she runs in and gets her daughter out. From out of nowhere her car is parked outside the caravan. Wouldn't it be suspicious to be parked right outside? (00:48:10)

Jerry Maguire picture

Plot hole: Towards the beginning of the movie Dorothy first "meets" Jerry by eavesdropping on his conversation with a woman in the airplane. But Jerry is located in First Class whereas Dorothy is in Coach. Going by her seat location it seems like she's sitting at least 10 rows from Jerry, plus the area that divides Coach from First Class between them. And Jerry is speaking in a soft voice. Add to that the drone that an airplane makes (even if not airborne) and it's highly unlikely that she would have been able to hear him, even if he was the only person talking in the plane (also unlikely).

Freeway picture

Plot hole: It is highly unlikely that something as unusual and noticeable as a long severed ponytail would have been overlooked at the crime scene where Bob was shot when it was originally combed for evidence. Especially after Vanessa told the police he'd done it; they would have looked for it as evidence.

Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco picture

Plot hole: The house fire first started when the dog catcher threw the cigarette in the dry grass next to the house. When Shadow and Sassy find out the house is on fire when they're passing by, the exact side the fire started at isn't burning. How did the fire even get inside the house?

One Fine Day picture

Plot hole: When Clooney gets the call from Melanie's mother, he calls Melanie to let her know that her mother can not watch her son. She asks how he got her phone number, implying that she did not know that the phones were switched. Right afterwards she tells him he has a meeting at five. How did she know that he had a meeting if she just found out that they switched phones?

Tremors 2 picture

Plot hole: When Earl, Grady, Burt and Kate are running from the truck that Burt shot, they go towards the cantina, which has a couple of smaller blue and white structures beside it. In a wide shot as they're running, we see the 1st shed at the side of the frame. A moment later Earl sees several walking Graboids in front of the 2nd shed. The beasts were in plain sight, yet nobody noticed until they were almost on top of them. (01:14:50)

Muppet Treasure Island picture

Plot hole: In the beginning after Flint buries the treasure, he kills all the men that are with him. The pistols he has are one-shot pistols, so there's no way he could kill 14 men using only two one-shot pistols.
